5 years old going on 15

Karli and I were cuddling on the couch watching the latest episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8 and she was doing her usual talking a mile a minute. On the show, Kate took the 3 boys to visit the USS North Carolina battleship. Karli was very interested in the boat and was asking tons of questions. She wanted to know why there were beds on the boat, why the guns were so big, and how could they cook food on a boat. It was really cute. She told me that she didn’t think that army guys should be fighting anymore because if they all die then we all will die. I assured her that would not happen. That is the last thing she needs to be worrying about. She is a bit of a worry wart like her momma. At one point she told Chase to come see the huge boat that the soldiers would fight on when they were protecting us from big battles. I am always impressed at how quickly and easily she understands things. But I often wonder if I tell her too much? There should be some sort of manual that parents can go to that tells us how old our kids should be when discussing certain topics.
